Occupy DC takes over Franklin School, formerly Franklin Shelter

On the 19th of September, an "Occupy cabaret" puppet show visited a variety of locations with activist history, such as the World Bank before ending Franklin Square. A puppet show about the history of Franklin School and the shelter there ended with one additional act-the dropping of banners announcing the liberation of the building for the third time. Ocupy DC was backing up Free Franklin, a group of activists who were occupying Franklin School.

Shortly before what was only promoted as a traveling puppet show left McPherson Square, another march departed for the Egyptian Embassy in solidarity with hard-pressed democracy activists in Egypt. Most of the police followed that march, so by the time the puppet show arrived at Franklin there was exactly ONE cop at the scene. The whole riot squad would have made no difference, though, as the occupation team was already inside the building.
